Melbourne Water is working with stakeholders, community representatives and residents to reimagine a number of creeks across Melbourne.
By working together we can create natural waterways and desirable open spaces where people can interact with nature in cooler, healthier environments.
This approach means that the people who are most likely to use the creek and open space can influence the design so that it meets their needs and preferences. And, the design is informed by local knowledge, community values and priorities.
Reimagining Arnolds Creek, Melton West
The first site to be reimagined is a 1.4km section of Arnolds Creek in Melton West. We expect construction work to commence in March 2019.
You can see the plans for this redesigned creek at the Reimagining Arnolds Creek Your Say webpage.
Reimagining Blind Creek, Boronia
Our site at Blind Creek extends from Manuka Drive to Scoresby Road Boronia.

Reimagining Tarralla Creek, Croydon
The section of Tarralla Creek to be re-designed extends from Dorset Road to Eastfied Road Croydon. To inform the co-design, we established a Community Advisory Group and held community engagement events.
You can see the proposed plans for redesigning this section of Tarralla Creek at the Reimagining Tarralla Creek Your Say webpage.
